People have their own way of filing their taxes. Some file as soon as they have all of their information, while others wait until the last possible day to get their taxes in. Along these same lines, some go to a tax preparer, while others electronically file on their own at home. Either way though, whether someone filed as soon as possible, or spent April 15 running around their home looking for that one last 1099 form, experts estimate that individual filers have roughly a one in 100 chance of ending up being audited.
At this point, with it being April 21 already, for many, tax time is done. They have filed and considered themselves done with the tax process for the year. However, with the one in 100 experts' estimate to CNN, some may find themselves being contacted by the IRS. Even just hearing the word audit is enough to make almost anyone panic, even if nothing was intentionally done wrong.
